I'm not one to decorate before Thanksgiving. In fact, I've always thought that around December 10th is a good date to put up our tree. With the little girls here, we've just begun decorating and I think we will do a little something every day for a week, and then put up the tree as the grand finale.
Today is wreath day, and we've hung two and centered one on the dining table. We first "gussied-up" the table with a beautiful silk runner, but soon realize that silk and two little girls do not combine for successful dining companions. So, for now, we are liking bare wood... Maybe I will find some beautiful yet appropriate placemats on a shopping excursion.
